Japans self-image was changed forever when Motooris great commentary explicated its myth and song, thereby resurrecting an oral tradition which had been eclipsed by Chinese writing. Book 1 of the commentary outlines the nativist ideology and philological principles underlying the whole endeavor, and is key to understanding Motooris contribution to literary theory, political thought, and linguistic investigation.

The preface by Naoki Sakai grounds the significance of the work in the context of eighteenth century discouse, and Ann Wehmeyers biographical introduction focuses on the development of Motooris interest in the language of the Kojiki.
